Constant Diamond Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Wine AdvocateThis is a classic mountain Cabernet Sauvignon meant for long-term aging. The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is even better. Combining power, elegance and complexity, this dense purple-hued offering possesses layers and layers of richness in addition to copious amounts of sweet black currant fruit intermixed with pen ink, lead pencil shavings and subtle smoke and earth. Forget this 2008 for 3-4 years and enjoy it over the following 2+ decades. Interestingly, the spring frosts combined with the selection process employed at Constant resulted in less than half the 2007 production.
